(2012) Conservative Cllr. David Parsons -FINANCIAL IRREGULARITIES

A Labour councillor has called for the leader of Leicestershire County Council to resign after an expenses matter was referred to the Standards Committee.

David Parsons has been accused of not promptly repaying money that he owed for trips to Europe.

A county council report found debts were built up in 2007 but Mr Parsons has denied any wrongdoing.

Labour County Councillor Jewel Miah said Mr Parsons should stand down while investigations take place.

“Do I think he should resign? Yes I do,” said Mr Miah.

A cross-party committee of councillors at the county council met on Monday to discuss a report into the allegations against Mr Parsons.
